Venues

See the full weekend schedule.

Good floors, good atmosphere, and short trips between venues. We’re proud of us, too.


University Center at Carnegie Mellon University

Workshops, Saturday and Sunday Evening Dances
5032 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213

Carnegie Mellon’s University Center, Rangos Ballroom is our main haunt for the weekend. It has a large, flexible floor, a great stage for Miss Freddye to rock on Saturday, and a parking garage next door that’s free for the entire duration of the event. Woohoo! Plus, the University Center has lots of restrooms for refreshing between events and is walking distance to numerous restaurants.

Accessibility:  There are elevators in the parking garage and the building, but it is a bit of a walk between the two. There are accessible stalls in the bathrooms.

Parking:  Free parking in the nearby East Campus Garage off of Forbes Ave. Parking is free, but you still may need to take a ticket. Don’t worry about paying, just save your ticket and put it in the gate machine as you drive out. The touch screen on the ticket machine is a pain and may need to be poked with force!

The Glitterbox Theater

Sunday Late Night Dance
460 Melwood Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213

Hi there. We’re glad you found us. Here at the theater we like stuff. All kinds of stuff. Stuff with bears, and movies, and puppets. Queer stuff, lecture stuff, meeting stuff, movement stuff. You know, the general stuff. Definitely we really like theater stuff. Were definitely interested in music stuff, but not like, you know, music stuff all the time kind of thing. We like to have professional people who do awesome stuff, and awesome people who do totally not professional stuff. And did we mention, we are reasonably priced for booking an event? Not like those hoity toity places that charge like $35 at the door! Who can afford that? Not most of the people we know. But, you know, we appreciate that stuff too even if we can’t go to it. So what were really getting down to is, we like you and we want to meet you. you probably also like stuff and most likely do some stuff yourself. So yeah, this is a stuff space.

Accessibility: Unfortunately there are stairs to get in the building and the space is not very accessible.

Parking: There is plenty of street parking and just 2 or 3 parking spaces in front of the building. Please leave those spots for those who need accessible parking or for people unloading equipment.
